    Motherboard caps really hot

    If something got hot enough for you to get burnt then you've got a serious problem on the mobo. Caps don't take kindly to temps much over 100 C. Must be a short somewhere on the power lines. Check your standoffs or back of the motherboard?

    Control Desktop Music with Smartphone

    It's a bit wonky and takes a bit of tinkering, but foobar2000 has an extension that connects it to an Android-side app: http://foobar2000controller.blogspot.si/p/how-to-start.html https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cav.foobar2000controller&hl=en

    Cannot get new CPU to work

    Always check CPU compatibility of your motherboard when upgrading.

    Are 6 AA batteries the same as 1 9v battery?

    Don't. The powerbank is not meant to do that.

    Caffeine: does it suck?

    But is it made out of people?

    Who doesn't love themselves some coffee?
  8. The Hakko is a fine choice, but so is Ersa - I use their i-CON PICO and I'm very happy with it - it gets hot fast and can be well regulated. It cost me about 100 €. You want something really good, buy Weller, most professionals use their stuff, but expect a premium price. This is one of their top tier products, and costs over 600 €.

    Intel Coffee Lake Review Thread

    First of all, I wasn't justifying anything. Second, I very much disagree with your "boring" assessment, and let's leave it at that.

    Intel Coffee Lake Review Thread

    Wow. So you don't want 6 cores for the price of 4? OK, fine. But I do. Maybe Intel really was sandbagging because the competition was non-existent. Ryzen gave Intel the much-needed kick in the butt. If I were a zealot I'd be calling Ryzen useless or something. However, if you insist on calling people names because they disagree with you I've got a gem for you: Zealot much?

    Should you eat at your workspace?

    Well, um, you know, that's um, like, hard.
  12. Did you check what XDA Developers has for that device? Example: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/rom-lineageos-14-1-vernee-mars-t3609635

    Should you eat at your workspace?

    I say no; crumbs get into your keyboard and on the floor. I do sometimes do it, but I'm always sorry afterwards. Not to mention my glass table gets dirty fast enough already.

    Intel Coffee Lake Review Thread

    @Majestic Boring. Much LOL. Seriously, this is pretty much the best single launch of something Intel since Sandy Bridge. Ivy, Haswell, (Should I even count Broadwell?) Skylake, Kaby Lake... all same old, same old, say 5% IPC improvement and perhaps somewhat higher clocks by say 100 MHz each gen. So you need a new motherboard... cry me a river. When was the last time Intel supported the same chipset for more than 2 generations? Is that a shit thing to do? Yes. Is it unexpected? No. Shitty TIM? Nothing new. However, 6 cores for same $$$ as 4 in Kaby Lake? YES PLEASE.

    Is buying from Ebay safe?

    In my experience, eBay is fine. Your insurance are PayPal refunds. I am yet to encounter real scams; but keep in mind cheap Made in China crap is still crap. Just don't let sellers pressure you into using anything else but PayPal, though.
